Blank every Recollection which contains another non-blank Recollection as a substring.

Replace the first paragraph of “Recollections” with:-

Each Memory of Atlantis has a Recollection, being a string of publicly-tracked flavour text, which if not blank should describe (or hint at) a description of the fate of Atlantis and how the next dynasty of BlogNomic will revisit its fall.

Add to “Recollections”:-

A Memory of Atlantis may never change their Recollection to a string which contains the entirety of another Memory of Atlantis’s non-blank Recollection as a substring.

If a Memory of Atlantis’s Recollection is a shorter substring of another Memory of Atlantis’s Recollection, and is not blank, then the former Memory of Atlantis is said to Concur with the latter. In addition, a Memory of Atlantis always Concurs with itself.

If “Compound recollection” enacted, add the following to “Primary Source”:-

A Memory of Atlantis may change their own Recollection to be a shorter substring of another Memory of Atlantis’s Recollection, at any time.

Readding the change-Recollection-to-a-name mechanic should Compound Recollection (inadvertently) remove it, and also changing it from names to a more mechanical and thematic substring system: if you want to support a Recollection of “Atlantis was consumed by fire one terrible night”, you can change your Recollection to “consumed by fire” or “terrible night” or anything else that’s in there.

Readding the change-Recollection-to-a-name mechanic should Compound Recollection (inadvertently) remove it, and also changing it from names to a more mechanical and thematic substring system, now that we’ve got one on the board and quoting it seems like an obvious way to second it. If you want to support a Recollection of “Atlantis was consumed by fire one terrible night”, you can change your Recollection to “consumed by fire” or “terrible night” or any other phrase that’s in there. This also opens up supporting multiple Recollections, should they share any terminology.
